Get your business finances under control with these packages from our management accountant

A management accountant is not the same as a regular accountant!

Yes, we can help you with your weekly and monthly accounting needs. But the real power of a management accountant is when you engage us to help with your systems and reporting.

For example, if you have the following challenges, then you’d definitely benefit from having a management accountant working with you:

  • Cash problems: Not sure if you can afford that extra stock or new equipment?
  • Paying yourself: Is there rarely enough in the business for you to pay your own salary?
  • Job costing: Are you sure you’re charging the right amount? Is your pricing structure correct?
  • Reports: No clue what all the numbers mean in your accounting system?
  • Systems problems: Is your inventory, accounting, job costing, or other software cumbersome – but you don’t know what to do about it?
  • Staff: Do your staff need training on computer systems or internal processes?
  • Saving time/money: Looking to work more efficiently?

What’s the difference between a regular accountant and a management accountant?

A regular accountant (known as a financial accountant) is there to provide necessary information to third parties, such as the IRD, or banks. In honesty, it’s not particularly helpful or timely to you, the business owner, for your decision making. But it’s necessary for compliance.

A management accountant is a lot more useful, as their role is to provide information to you, the business owner. Timely, relevant information that can help you with your strategic and everyday decision making.

This strategic management accounting gives you the kind of knowledge that will help grow your business, and make it more profitable and efficient. Woohoo!

"We have owned our business for seven years and about a year ago decided we wanted to improve our business systems and operating procedures. With Trevor’s expert advice we quickly implemented a great business management system that gives us much a better insight into how our business is performing on a monthly and annual basis. Trevor is very patient with us (!) and gives us lots of ideas on how to increase our income and keep our costs down."
